The Limitcast is back! It’s time to roll up those Kwanzaa mats, blow out the menorah, and take down the tree. The holidays are over (finally!) and it’s time to get back to business. We missed last week, and we apologize, but now we are rallying behind a slew of new topics.
This week’s podcast is going to focus on the critical approach to video game reviews.
Sure, it looks easy. You sit down and play a game, and write about the experience. However, there are different schools of thought on how, and who, should review a game.
Should a critic, too deeply invested into a genre, review the game?
Is there a place for subjectivity in a quest for more and more objectivity?
Do gamers even read the words we put on the page? If I said your mother just walked into my room wearing a two piece leopard bathing suit holding a Nintendo controller and an HD component cable for the Xbox 360, would you even notice?
The Limitcast crew is going to do their best to tackle this colossus, and we need your help. Leave us your comments. What do you look for in a review, and for that matter, the writer putting it on the page?
We can’t do it without you guys. Now, get out there and fill that comment box!
